We started today's show talking about some recent highlights on our culinary life: Cam's broccolini farfelle, Matt's trip to Mason's of Bendigo, and a new restaurant in the old Port Melbourne courthouse Ciao Cielo.
We checked in with John at the Queen Vic Market.
Industry legend Alla Wolf-Tasker is celebrating thirty years of the Lake House in Daylesford, and has released a beautiful new book called Three Decades On. We spoke about the early days of the restaurant, and how long-term dining manages to transcend trends and fads.
Even further afield we chatted to Dom Hall, the current chef stationed at Casey Base in Antartica. Their annual mid-winter's feast is happening in a few weeks and discussed what's on the menu, how you manage to prep food for so many people in the middle of nowhere, and how they take their coffee waaaaay down south.
About this program
Food for thought: recipes, hints and tips, interviews and a market report.
It's one of those constants in this fair city; every Sunday at midday tune into the best radio station on earth for Eat It, Triple R's resident food show. No-one really knows quite how many years the show has been on-air, but it's been going long enough for us all to lose track. Each week Cam Smith and Matt Steadman take an hour to discuss every aspect of food and drink, including regular market reports, interviews with chefs and restaurateurs, chats with industry and lobby groups, emptying bottles with wine-makers and writers, answering listeners' questions, the occasional on-air cooking segment, and anything else we deem fit. Sometimes we'll even squeeze in a song or two.
